Case of missing Tucabia man still unsolved

THE case of missing Tucabia man Stephen Colin Bryant is almost 22 years old and still no closer to being solved.

Stephen visited a neighbour on December 23, 1993, and accepted an invitation to come over for Christmas dinner. That was the last sighting of the man.

On February 14, 1994, the neighbour went to Ulmarra Police Station and reported him missing.

Stephen lived alone in a house at Lot 3, Section 6, Bellingen St, Tucabia.

When police came to his home to begin their investigation of his disappearance, food was in the cupboard, his clothes were untouched and the power and the telephone were still connected.

In addition to his undisturbed house, investigators found Stephen had not accessed his bank account since December 16, 1993.

Grafton detectives have continued investigations into Stephen's disappearance and followed a number of lines of inquiry.

Detective Sergeant Grahame Burke said all leads had been exhausted.

"Unfortunately we are no closer to solving this case than when it was initially investigated in 1994," he said.

Grafton Detectives are appealing to members of the community who may have information regarding Stephen's disappearance to phone Grafton Police on 6642 0222 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
